Rated 4 out of 5 by Review about Oracle Identity Manager Valuable Features:reconciliationidentity self serviceconnectors - huge number of available out-of-the-box connectors , covering a large number of real-world use cases, requiring little to no customization effort.Improvements to My Organization:streamline access request processmanage accounts without manual interventionRoom for Improvement:the default UI is modifiable using the web composer interface, but it is tied to the ADF environment it lives in. Also, the ecommerce-like request process may need some more polish because often customers require features like direct access right requests.Use of Solution:6 yearsDisclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:partnership September 30, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by The GUI is old. We need to reboot the product often. Valuable Features:Because OIM has a Java API, you can develop scripts and automate tasks. Integration with other products written in Java is easy, more or less.Improvements to My Organization:The user just has to search the product+role in OIM and request it, with an approval workflow. The account is created automatically.Room for Improvement:The GUI is very old and could be more user friendly; not all administrative operations can be done with the web interface. You need a Java client for fine tuning. Search operations are very slow, and you often need to use a wildcard. Users expect much-easier, Google search-type operations.Stability can also be improved.Use of Solution:I have used it for two years.Stability Issues:* We see a lot of Java exceptions in logs* The task scheduler often doesn’t work.* It loses its connection with BBDD clusters.* We need to reboot the product very often.* Data sources stop working after a few days of intensive useScalability Issues:I have not encountered any scalability issues.Technical Support:Technical support is 9/10.Previous Solutions:I did not previously use a different solution.Initial Setup:Initial setup was complex; a lot of customizations are needed for the product to work.Other Solutions Considered:Before choosing this product, I did not evaluate other options.Other Advice:Try to implement newer versions (OIM 12c, for example), or change to other vendors (IBM, CA).Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Provides us with better control of our identity data and entitlements in target systems. The process of integrating with target systems can be simplified. Valuable Features:Reconciliation and provisioning engine, but we also use other features like requests, approvals, and reporting.Improvements to My Organization:We now have better control of our identity data and entitlements in target systems. Automation of provisioning, updating and deprovisioning of accounts in target systems.Room for Improvement:The process of integrating with target systems can be simplified. Setting up a connector is a cumbersome process involving several interfaces, configuration objects, etc.Use of Solution:It's been in production for three years.Deployment Issues:There were no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:Minor issues with stability and performance, but after tuning properly most of these were solved.Scalability Issues:It's been able to scale for our needs.Technical Support:Depends on the support agent. It can vary from good to very poor. In general, it takes a lot of time before support requests are routed to higher instances like development teams.Initial Setup:Initial setup has got better then previous versions, but still has place for improvement. The setup involves a lot of sub-components with many dependencies etc. The documentation is not entirely clear with regards to dependencies.Implementation Team:I work for a consulting company that has implemented Oracle Identity Manager at clients. It might be that my views are biased, but I would certainly recomend to have technical expertise before starting an implementation project.Cost and Licensing Advice:I would recommend purchasing the licenses before the end of Oracles fiscal year. You tend to get the best discounts then.Other Solutions Considered:We are currently involved in the process of evaluating other vendors.Other Advice:Gartner and Forrester offer reports comparing and ranking different vendors. At the initiation of our implementation project, Oracle was ranked as a leader. The picture has changed since then. In my personal opinion, the choice of technical solution should always be subordinate to companys needs, issues and use-cases. When these are defined, the company should compare several different solutions to each other and focus on ease of learning and use of product.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by We’ve outsourced infrastructure and application management, but application development and implementation is in-house. I would recommend this approach. Valuable Features:* Provisioning* Certification* Self ServiceImprovements to My Organization:It helped us reduce the user management cost, and strengthen IT security by reducing the risk.Room for Improvement:New application onboarding requires a lot of complex configurations and setups to complete the onboarding of a new application.Use of Solution:I've been using it for over six years.Deployment Issues:There were no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:Stability is sometimes a challenge.Scalability Issues:It’s a very scalable application.Technical Support:6/10Initial Setup:It's complex as the product has compatibility with many different operating systems, databases and application servers. The initial setup requires a lot of complex configurations during installation.Implementation Team:We’ve outsourced infrastructure and application management, but application development and implementation is in-house. I would recommend this approach.Other Solutions Considered:I have evaluated many IAM options, including cloud and open source products on the market. OIM fulfills the requirements for my organization.Other Advice:Try to focus on the IAM processes and functional side of the field, rather than technical development.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by I like the delegated administration, centralized account management and attestation. Valuable Features:* Centralized account management* Provisioning, reconciliation* Attestation/Re-certification* Delegated administrationImprovements to My Organization:Application access is provided to and removed from end users in a timely manner, which removes delays in the on-boarding/off-boarding process. It also improves productivity and security.Room for Improvement:It could be more stable and faster.Use of Solution:I've been using it for eight years.Deployment Issues:I've had no issues with deployment.Stability Issues:There are issues with stability in the long run.Scalability Issues:There are issues with the scalability in the long run.Customer Service:6/10Technical Support:6/10. You need to have serious leverage with the Oracle account managers to get support issues fixed quickly.Initial Setup:It was straightforward in our case. This depends on the customer requirements and also how well planned the project is.Implementation Team:We did it with an in-house team with help from the vendor.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by It replaced the old Oracle SSO and OID, helping us save on support for off-the-shelf products. I would like to see a better installation process. Valuable Features:* Oracle Identity Federation* Oracle Internet Directory (LDAP)* ODSM* OIM* OAM* Oracle Virtual DirectoryImprovements to My Organization:It replaced the old Oracle SSO and OID, helping us save on support for off-the-shelf products.Also, it easily integrates with other applications, even with custom apps.Room for Improvement:* Installation process* Technical support* More relevant documentation about specific parameters (as I still have no clue what they are responsible for)* Better documentation for HA and clustered setup especially with F5 Load BalancersUse of Solution:We've been using this solution for more than two years.Deployment Issues:There were no issues with the deployment.Stability Issues:We had some small issues with stability, particularly with memory leaks in some functions of this product. However, Oracle came up with the right patches.Scalability Issues:We've had no issues scaling it for our needs.Customer Service:4/10 for Australian customer service. It seems like Oracle customer service does not know its product as well as I know it.Technical Support:4/10 for Australian technical support. I noticed that US technical support is quite knowledgeable, so I recommend asking for support only from Europe or North America as they have good engineers there.Initial Setup:The initial setup was complex, as any enterprise identity management product would be. First, it's not clear what to download from Oracle e-delivery. Secondly, it's not one product but a complex, multiple-component system. We have to first install OID, and then find the right repository creation utility RCU. Apart from this, you need to install SOA first for OIM, and there are multiple patches for the database and infrastructure. Only after all prerequisites have been met is it possible to install.People from a pure Oracle DBA background can't do this. You need to have all-arounders with knowledge of SSL and PKI infrastructure, plus a little bit of skill with Linux. They also need to have Oracle Database skills and not follow template thinking.Also, due to the nature of the organization, my employer is paranoid about security, so it is done in a very secure configuration, including reverse proxies, traffic encryption (SSL), and High Availability setup with F5 Load Balancer. It was just really complex.Implementation Team:It was implemented in-house by two or three experienced contractors/consultants, including myself.Cost and Licensing Advice:It has many built-in components, and some components, if you don't actually use them, you don't need to purchase them.Other Solutions Considered:We did not consider other solutions as we needed a certified and supported configuration to perform an integration with Oracle E-Business R12. Also, the potential integration with other identity management systems was a factor.Other Advice:Just go for it. Stability and scalability are very good. Once installation is done and it is stable, you will not experience too much trouble.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. May 1, 2016
